The 2011 baseball season will mark the 20th anniversary of the thrilling 1991 World Series that saw a multitude of heroics — remember Kirby’s catch? — lead to a world championship for the Minnesota Twins over the Atlanta Braves.
To honor quite easily the most impossible-to-forget moment, the Twins will celebrate (as a bobblehead) the polarizing wrestling match at first base that saw Kent Hrbek, as Braves fans might be apt to say, airlift Ron Gant off the bag and tag him out.
It’s especially fantastic in bobblehead form. Unless of course you’re a Braves fan, which would make this entire giveaway — along with this post — excruciatingly vomitous. Have to admit though, Gant appears to be enjoying it.
